We received an order this week with 4 cassettes that were broken. That’s pretty unusual, we usually don’t see many broken cassettes.
Most of the time cassette breaks are the result of the adhesive between the leader tape and the tape itself comes undone. It’s a pretty easy fix for us as long as we can get to the two ends of the tape.
In this case there was an additional problem – the cassette housing was held together by glue and not screws. This complicates things becuase we literally have to break the seal to get to the tape to fix it.
In these cases we normally just remove the entire tape, repair it and place it in a new housing. Once we do that, it works perfectly! We fixed these 4 cassettes and they are good as new.
Normally we charge anywhere from $5 to $10 to do these repairs.
